August 25th CSA Harvest & Pick-Up

There have been a few different varieties of garlic in the CSA boxes (Chesnock Red, Leningrad, Persian Star, Russian Red). Each variety has unique characteristics that influence their culinary use. For example, Leningrad is quite spicy, great in stir fries and stews but a bit overwhelming when simply roasted and eaten right away. Here is a link to our garlic profiles with more of the specifics.

REMINDER: no pick-up next week due to long weekend, see you on September 8th.
